Good morning. A tad colder today, compared to yesterday, but at least those screaming winds have died down! I wanted to get a walk in yesterday, but with those high wind gusts, no way.
Got the rest of the chores done yesterday. Up early today, tomorrow and Friday, to babysit. Today I will be bringing them back here for the day. Tomorrow I will keep them at their house tomorrow. Friday will just be babysitting in the morning.
Well that is all I have...hope I won't be talking to myself today, lol!
Sorry you had a "lonely" day yesterday. Sometimes I like/want one, especially when my days have been busier than normal. That wasn't the reason I missed posting yesterday but this time of year I can yearn for some solitude.
Yesterday we went shopping! We didn't take in any big after Christmas sales but did stop at Stein's to check out a lighted creche. Didn't buy one as I thought they were too much money - NOT marked down 60% as advertised from when I had seen them before Christmas. Then we went to Menards. SIL said he is ready to start working on our BR after the Holidays, so we got the shower unit that will replace our bathtub. Thought we had the shower door but realized after we paid for it we didn't but that has to be ordered & will take a couple weeks to get. I need to look for new flooring someday too. And haven't decided if I'm going to get a new vanity top & sink, mirror & lights. May wait till next winter to do that - all depends on the budget.
It was so windy on the way home & the shower boxes aren't very heavy. I was afraid they were going to blow out of the truck. DH stopped several times to tighten the ropes he had secured them with & we took the back roads so he could go slow. Even the back roads had traffic, but we got them home OK. I was a nervous wreck.
Today we have to go for groceries - had planned to yesterday but once we were home I didn't want to go out in that wind again. One day this week I have to get my rings made a little smaller & check out the setting on my diamond.
DS has extra days off this week. His workplace usually closes between holidays except for a skeleton crew. He will be working Thursday & Friday then next Tues back to regular hours.
Not much else happening around here. I'm knitting the second sock for DH now. I ordered some yarn online for me & that came Saturday. My socks will be next - well maybe after the ear flaps for DH's knit hat, if I can figure out how(?) to do that. The instructions I found online are sort of vague.
Have a good day with the GKs. Hope Phyl is enjoying her company. I'm ready to take the tree down & get things back where they belong, but that won't happen before Sunday. Good job for me while DH watches boring football. However I'm not a TV lover no matter what's on.
